Film Version of Tatsumi's A DRIFTING LIFE Oscar Contender

Manga creator Yoshihiro Tatsumi is a seminal force in Japanese comics. His A DRIFTING LIFE book is an autobiographical story of what drove him to write and draw what would become "gekiga" manga; a new, alternative form of telling stories. Now his story has been translated into film.

More at Crunchyroll.

Trailer here:

The film will be Singapore's Oscar entry.

No US distribution dates as yet.

Hat tip to Deb Aoki.
